    Oh, and I need a name for a plumbing part that you’ll know if you could please. Where the drain hole is for the the scuttle panel (the one that spills all over the inner wing :rolleyes:) I want a plug and hose. The plug would be in two pieces so that it can sandwich the wing between it. I then want to route a hose from it. What’s one of those called!?

    I believe it is a 20mm dia hole and if so, something like this?

    You might have a problem as, for obvious reasons, the hole is right at the bottom of the scuttle, so you will not be able to get the hole in the fitting low enough and fit the clamp nut. I think a different approach is required.

    They're called tank connectors and come in plastic, brass and stainless thread or glue together in various sizes...

    On my way home, obviously, I drove to the furthest tank station on the island, put £20 in and a double bottle of redex injector cleaner, then drove home in 3rd gear all the way :D:D:D

    Still gonna pop a new fuel filter on and do an oil change, I got filter and loads of 10/40 oil so I might as well.

    I've figured out two of the fails, the welding will be done tomorrow and that will go fast as it's just getting a quick patch for now.

    Intermittent brake lights is odd as I tilted the rear view mirror and they came on and stayed lit every time I braked so could just be in need of a douse of contact cleaner and rub with emery to make the connection better.

    Gorilla 5 minute epoxy, put it in place using the epoxy and secure with duct tape until it has cured, job done.

    Not sure on the location or the metal your planning to make a vent in to attach a hose too.. but if you can weld or solder a small tube would work copper springs to mind.. .

    Solder would be better than ’poxy, as you can’t see if the joint breaks!

    Yup. Flanged fitting would be good as more bond area. Will look into it more laters.

    Enjoy yo welderising in this liquid sunshine ;)

    Didn't go according to plan, not happy, gonna be a busy day tomorrow as I need this sorted and got chores to do for mum too, not to mention I am entertaining tomorrow evening too so this is going to be a mega push lol

    All good fun, reflectors found and purchased along with new lamps for the side repeaters.

    The intermittent stop lamps is worrying me as I have tried them several times and they work fine.

    We can always make it some other time if you wish?
    Takes one pressure off you.

    Just let me know your decision
